Mortgage Agent/Lead Planner
Monica the Mortgage Lady Inc - Powered by Sherwood Mortgage Group
After graduating from 3 years in Business, I entered into the Financial Industry in 1996. I worked at TD Canada Trust for 7 years as a Financial Service Officer and have been brokering mortgages for 18 years now. As an experience Mortgage Agent, I felt compelled to assist other women starting out in the industry. 10 years ago I started a team and now as a Lead Planner, I share this journey with 3 other amazing ladies.
I was honoured and humbled to have received the Reader's Choice Award for Favourite Mortgage Broker in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020. I was also so humbled and grateful to be Awarded with the Mortgage Architects Top Business Growth Individual Award in 2019 as well as the Presidents Club Award for Individually funding over $35 Million of mortgage business in 2019 and 2020. This year in 2021 I will have funded $50 Million in mortgage volume and $75 Million in team volume.
What I am most proud of is knowing that I have set an example for my own daughters that if you put your mind to something and work hard, you can achieve anything. When I left the bank, I did not even have enough money to buy a lap top. I worked off the floor and kitchen table and really had no back up plan if I failed. Through pure determination, I have been able to work through every challenge that came my way and can now look back at this journey and know that I would not change a thing. My success feels very rewarding that it came from hard work, commitment, consistency, and determination. My advice to anyone new entering the industry is "Never Give Up". You can do this !
